Eating disorders are often undetected as there can be a great deal of shame is involved as often depression is a co-occurring disorder. Some disorders, such as anorexia nervosa or bulima can lead to serious complication or even death if left untreated. Often food can be a source of comfort to an individual, resulting in over-eating, as well as the flip side when it comes to severe food restriction, allowing a person to dictate specific control in their diets. It is vital that eating disorders are brought to the surface; however, and a collaborative healthcare team can work in unison with the individual and their family, if possible, & reaching out for help is of upmost importance.

Do you use food to cope? When you are under emotional distress do you overeat or under eat? You may think that food is the problem, but it isn't. Food is symptom of underlying pain. Figure out what that pain is, address it, and your need to eat ( or restrict) in the face if it will end. Joining one of my groups and doing group therapy is an excellent way to heal that pain. You will be in the company of others who understand and can offer support. Group not for you? We can work individually instead.

You don't have to be ruled by your eating disorder! Therapy is the #1 treatment for eating issues. You don’t have to have an eating disorder to transform your relationship with food and your body.

If a sensitive young adult feels anxious, fearful, powerless, overwhelmed, or lonely, they may discover a degree of comfort in eating. People who binge on food frequently experience life as overwhelming. Perhaps they experience their loved ones as pre-occupied, and/or their home as conflicted, disorganized and in need of boundaries. By working with my clients to understand and attend to any problems inherent in their family system, I can help address this problem.

Body image and eating disorders stand way of other things that are more important. You can’t help being critical of the way your body is. That’s what minds do – they are critical. They have to be! But hating is getting entrenched in those self-criticisms. Letting them drive your behavior, so you end up living your life more about managing your self-criticisms than about your relationships, or your career, or your spirituality – whatever is most important to you.

Eating disorders rarely are biological, in other words learned responses to stress and trauma which are specialties of mine. Mindfulness is a great help to those suffering from this addiction. I want to know what has happened to make the client want to "cover up" the grief, sadness, loneliness, abandonment, or social issues causing the overeating. Remember it's not what you are eating but what is "eating you." Counseling is needed here!

In 90048 - Nearby to Westwood Los Angeles.

I view an eating disorder as a coping strategy (tool), and therapy is a place for you to replace this "tool" with one that is helpful rather than harmful. You and I would work together to find new ways of coping with uncomfortable feelings and situations. We would figure out what your triggers are and how to live with upsetting experiences. We might also discover that control has a lot to do with what's going on, and its roots might stem from how you were treated by your parents and other family members. So, we would also find ways for you to not only feel but actually BE more in control of your life.
